- Section 1 -

 

Deuteronomy 4:39
39 Know therefore this day, and
consider it in thine heart, that the
Lord he is God in heaven above, and
upon the earth beneath: there is none
else.

***
I Corinthians 8:6
6 But to us there is but one God,
the Father, of whom are all things,
and we in him; and one Lord Jesus
Christ, by whom are all things, and
we by him.


551:3,12 Chapter 15: Genesis

 

Chapter 15: Genesis
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

The Way

No blight, no broken wing, no moan, 
Truth's fane can dim; 
Eternal swells Christ's music-tone, 
In heaven's hymn. 

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

(The real producer)
Either Mind produces, or it is produced. If Mind is first, it
cannot produce its opposite in quality and quantity, called
matter. If matter is first, it cannot produce Mind. Like
produces like. In natural history, the bird is not the product of
a beast. In spiritual history, matter is not the progenitor of
Mind.
(The ascent of species)
Evolution describes the gradations of human belief, but it does
not acknowledge the method of divine Mind, nor see that material
methods are impossible in divine Science and that all Science is
of God, not of man.

556:25 Chapter 15: Genesis

(Ontology versus physiology)
Ontology receives less attention than physiology. Why? Because
mortal mind must waken to spiritual life before it cares to solve
the problem of being, hence the author's experience; but when that
awakening comes, existence will be on a new standpoint.


275:6 Chapter 10: Science of Being

 

Chapter 10: Science of Being
Divine Science understood and acknowledged.  

I thank Thee O Father,...

Thus olden faith's pale star now blends 
In seven-hued white! 
Life, without birth and without end, 
Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections.

(Spirit the starting-point)
The starting-point of divine Science is that God, Spirit, is
All-in-all, and that there is no other might nor Mind, - that God
is Love, and therefore He is divine Principle.


138:14 Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine

 

Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially.

For heaven's Christus, earthly Eves, 
By Adam bid, 
Make merriment on Christmas eves, 
O'er babe and crib. 

Thy kingdom is come,
 Thou art ever-present.

(Sublime summary)
The supremacy of Spirit was the foundation on which Jesus built.
His sublime summary points to the religion of Love.

What the Beloved knew and taught, 
Science repeats, 
Through understanding, dearly sought, 
With fierce heart-beats;  

Adorable One.

(Hypocrisy condemned)
The great Teacher knew both cause and effect, knew that truth
communicates itself but never imparts error.
